The Herb

Hungry at noon, and finding ourselves in Malleshwaram, we went to this restaurant located in the 4th floor of The Basil Hotel.  Very non-descript and drab green and brown décor greeted us – and coupled with the slow service, I began fearing the worst.  But – pleasantly enough- the food was very, very good.  The restaurant serves mainly North Indian and Chinese cuisine, and a South Indian thali.  My two companions ordered the thali which came with puris, sagu, bisibele bath (scrumptious), rice, sambar (five stars for it), rasam, curd rice and a most-delicious badam halva.   We ordered a cream of chicken soup (good), tandoori and missi roti (excellent), gol tarkari curry (mixed vegetables – superb) and dal tadka (yummy).  The food was wholesome, tasted like homemade, not too spicy or too bland.  The thalis cost Rs. 90 each and the cost for the rest of the meal was approximately Rs. 500.  I would recommend you go here when you feel like eating home food; stick to the basics and you will not go wrong.  Parking is available at the hotel.
